This is a picture of avid boxing fans in the Philippines. As far as I can remember, boxing has always been a popular sport back home. I still remember 'Thrilla in Manila" although I didn't watch it. I remember our neighbors getting together so they could watch it as a group. Navarette was the name that used to come to mind whenever I think of Filipino boxers. He used to be famous but it was a brief one.
Today, Manny Pacquiao is synonymous to 'boxing' back there [and everywhere, maybe?]. Why not when he's been setting world record after world record just like what he did when he beat his latest opponent yesterday. According to the news, crimes come to a halt whenever he has a fight. One can only wish....if he can fight daily. Of course that's not possible.
After this latest victory, I wonder if he will return to the ring again. A Mayweather bout is what's everybody's waiting for. But is it worth it?
Anyway...I don't watch boxing. I'm happy he won but I just can't watch a sport where blood is a sure thing. But that's just me.
